Plans for former COOP store site move forward
Published on Wednesday, 10th April 2019
The Borough Council has now received permission to demolish parts of the former COOP Department store in Nuneaton, as outlined in its recent planning submission.
The parts of the building to be demolished are physically and economically obsolete; other parts of the building that have some historical and aesthetic significance are to be retained for inclusion in any future redevelopment.
Demolition work will start within a few months, once the asbestos removal works have been completed and the site is safe to work on.
Cllr Julie Jackson, Leader of the Council said:
“This is yet another positive step forward for the Transforming Nuneaton programme. The demolition of the obsolete parts of the COOP building will allow us to make progress on the redevelopment of this important site within the town centre.”
